Shoghi Effendi: Flashback…

What Shoghi’s Relatives say about him…

Standing : Abdul Hossein Dehqan & his brother, Sitting : Shoghi Effendi http://www.shahbazi.org

Born in ‘Akká in March 1897, Shoghi Effendi was related to The Báb through his father, Mírzá Hádí Shírází, and to Baha’u’llah through his mother, Ziyá’iyyih Khánum, the eldest daughter of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. From the early years of his life, Shoghi Effendi was greatly influenced by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, who provided much of his initial training. Shoghi Effendi would pray at every dawn for one hour in his grandfather’s room and learned numerous prayers which ‘Abdu’l-Bahá encouraged him to chant. It was also ‘Abdu’l-Bahá who insisted that the appellation given to the child should be “Shoghi Effendi”, (“Effendi” signifies “Sir”), rather than simply “Shoghi”, as a mark of respect towards him.

Shoghi Effendi’s Marriage

Shoghi Effendi was born, according to Bahai sources, on March 3, 1896, after Baha’u’llah’s death in 1892. Shoghi Effendi was to marry his cousin Maryam, daughter of Sir Abbas Effendi’s son-in-law Mirza Jalal Shahid.

Shoghi Effendi backed out and married Mary Maxwell. Subject to verification she is the daughter of May Ellis Maxwell, nee May Ellis Bolles. Her husband was a comedian. He was not a Bahai. After marriage she transferred her residence to Montreal. (Ref: God Passes By, P. 237; 239)

She never accepted the family name of Shoghi Effendi and always maintained her family name Maxwell. Her followers gave her titles of Ruhiyyeh Khanum and Amatul Baha.

The Surname ‘Rabbani’

According to Mirza Muhammad Ali’s sources, to distinguish the issues of one Afnan from those other Afnan, Sir Abbas Effendi gave the surname of Rabbani to children of Mirza Hadi Afnan.

Shoghi Rabbani retained this surname until his appointment as the guardian of the Bahai cause under Sir Abbas Effendi’s Will and Testament, the Bahai World, 1926-1928, Vol. II, P. 84, in which he was designated as Shoghi Effendi. Effendi means Mister.

Secret activities of Guardian of Faith

Conversion of Funds for Private Use
Ruth White: The subject converted funds to his own use. The Bahai religion and its Enemy the Bahai Organization by Ruth White, the Tuttle Company, Rutland, Vermont 1929.

Ruth White says: “In the Autumn of 1919 I sent to Abdul Baha [i.e. Sir Abbas Effendi] an American Express Company check of Five hundred dollars and asked him to apply it to some of the many charities he was dispensing.

About four month after we arrived in Haifa as the guests of Abdul Baha. On the day before departure I asked Abdul Baha if he had received the check. Without a moment’s hesitation and very emphatically he said that he had not received it. He repeated this a number of times, and seemed indignant that it had not been turned over to him.

I discussed this with various members of the family of Abdul Baha, and one of the brothers-in-law said he would go to town and enquire about the matter. He returned and said there was no record of the check. When I returned to America I asked the American Express Company to look up the receipt of the check I had sent through their office, and on the back of it was the signature of the person who had received the cash. This person was Shoghi Rabbani [i.e. Shoghi Effendi].

I asked the American Express Company to Photostat this check for me, which they did. Herewith it is a reproduction of the check with the signature of Sh. Rabbani on the back. Here then is proof positive that Shoghi Effendi cashed out the check and also proof that the son-in-law [presumably Mirza Muhsin Afnan] who purported to enquire of the check did not do it at all. Otherwise, he would have ascertained in a few minutes from the office of the American Express Company at Haifa that the check had been cashed by Sh. Rabbani, as I had given the son-in-law the whole information, the date of sending, the name of sender, etc. All of which shows that there was collusion between the son-in-law and Shoghi Effendi. Circumstantial evidence also points to the fact that Shoghi Effendi used the money to go to Oxford University.

For immediately after cashing the check he departed for Oxford, this despite the fact that Abdul Baha did not wish him to go. Some may naturally ask: How could Shoghi Effendi have cashed the check unless he had authority to do so. This he may have had. Yet the fact remain that the proceeds were never turned over to Abdul Baha. My readers may, therefore, draw their own conclusions.”

The making of Shoghi Effendi

At the time of the passing of Sir Abbas Effendi in 1921, the only members of the Baha’s family, unaffected by Sir Abbas Effendi’s clutches , and were in good book  were Sir Abbas Effendi’s full sister Sultan or Bahiyya Khanum, surnamed the supreme leaf (Waraqa-i-Bahiyya), Sir Abbas Effendi’s wife lady Munira, Sir Abbas Effendi’s four daughters, Sir Effendi’s four sons-in-law.
It was in such circumstance that after the death of Sir Abbas Effendi, his will came to public in which Shoghi Effendi was inducted into office as Guardian of the cause under the terms of Sir Abbas Effendi’s will and testament, for which no probate was taken out. Apparently an irregularity which set people wondering whether the will and testament is real…?

During his life span Sir Abbas Effendi had never declared him as his successor, since as per the Will and Testament of Baha’u’llah Mohammed Ali Effendi was suppose to take the chair of guardianship after Sir Abbas Effendi.

Pleading inability to enter upon the duties of his office forthwith to recover from the shock caused by the death of Sir Abbas Effendi, Shoghi Effendi withdrew his hand from the things, retired into solitude for a number of years, and left the actual handling of the Bahai affair in the hands of the elderly members of the Sir Abbas Effendi’s family with Baha’s daughter the supreme leaf as a titular head, who served as a mere rubber-stamp, master minded by Sir Abbas Effendi’s wife lady Munira, “the she of Isfahan”.

On the one hand, the Father designates Muhammad Ali as “the Branch derived from the ancient stock, He whom god has chosen, the Most Great Branch, god’s proof among his creation, and the Sweet Savor of god between the heaven and the earth”, on the other hand, the son, Abdul Baha Abbas “the Center of the Covenant, the Most Mighty Branch, the Branch derived from the ancient stock”, brands Muhammad Ali as “the Center of sedition, a ferocious lion, a ravening wolf, a blood-thirsty beast,  and poisoner of others, a covenant-breaker, a kindler of discord, a shower of malice, a stirrer of sedition, a dishonor of god, and a temperer with the sacred writings”. Has  Baha’u’llah  erred in his divine judgment of Muhammad Ali ?

Shoghi Effendi came out of his retirement, took over the reins if the Baha’i administration, and demanded ready and implicit obedience from the servants of God, in default of which any servant of god was liable to excommunication or summary expulsion from the faith under same pretence and pretext. Shoghi Effendi brooked interference. His decisions were absolute and final and his words authoritative. As the divinely-ordained guardian all the faithful must obey him.

Shoghi Effendi the Play Boy

Subhi’s Payam-i Padar, PP. 143-146 mentioned that Shoghi Effendi  to be a frequenter of men of magnificent physique and virility, a pervert who craved to be consorted with, a hermaphrodite requiring surgical operation to determine his sex.

Subhi  have been an eyewitness on several occasions to performance of such indecent acts and on one occasion particular occasion he states to have been challenged by the Shoghi Effendi  to put his manhood  to the test.

“Shoghi Effendi was possessed of peculiar nature and habit which cannot be properly described; his manly disposition was inconsiderable; he was continually desirous of cultivating friendship, and associations, with robust men and youth!.”

“Shoghi Effendi, Dr Ziya Baghdadi and Subhi get up a party at night at Acre at which jokes were cracked. Subhi absented himself from the room on business. On return he found the couple in compromising circumstances “with Dr Ziya Baghdadi having committed an indecent act” …

Taken aback” Subhi said : “Doctor! What is this business you have been doing?” Shoghi Effendi turned the face toward me” and said: “If you are also a man, prove yourself a male!!”

“I have heard such remarks from, and have witnessed such scenes of Shoghi Effendi on several occasions.”
Shoghi Effendi may be categorized “in the category of “hermaphrodites” in whom opposite qualities are embodied….”requiring surgical operation for adjustment.

Shoghi Effendi has “no feeling, attachment or devotion” for father, Brother, Sister, mother or friend. He issues orders which no sane man would give.”

The Kashful-Hiyal (the Uncovering of Deceptions) by Abdul Husayn Ayati nicknamed Avareh, one-time chief Bahai missionary says, “it is not possible to categorize him as either male or female! Neither possessing feminine kindness and charm nor having mannish wisdom and sobriety! There are attachments in these kinds of people which is hard to find out. I am not aware if you have heard of that physicians lays down a man and by some medical treatment changes him to a female and vice versa. … I wish Shoghi had visited a physician in his youth and could be purified! That’s why you don’t see him having any attachment to his father or grief of his siblings; neither remembering his mother’s pains to raise him nor recognizing his true friends!

He commands things that are not wise, and excuses that are far from rational. All this because of the same root problem.
Ref: Awara’s Kashf-al-Hiyal, Vol. II, 2nd impression, PP. 84-85 and P. 166; Vol., III 3rd impression, PP. 212-213:

“The command of Allah shall be executed” (a quote from Quran), forty days after Abdul’baha was passed, mourning time was over, and grooming and happy time had arrived for Shoghi! And Shoghi, you don’t know who Shoghi was! The same Shoghi who if all accusations before his adolescence (with all proofs and evidences!) are wrong, those after his adolescence are true! Because hundreds of students who were studying in Beirut are witness that he had no inclination towards his studies and his only passion was to sell theater/movie tickets to ladies and his only concern was to attract ladies’ hearts and dance with them. Finally and because of all these intends, he failed in his studies and scabies appeared on his hands, so he was wearing Chamois leather gloves and treating them for a while!

Shoghi and with that you knew who Shoghi was! The guy who failed to get a diploma in Oxford as well as Beirut! The same Shoghi who his classmate asked him why don’t you pay attention to your studies and he replied:” what is studying all about? To find a piece of bread and mine is already prepared ” And the same Shoghi who during his first and last speech in London, for an audience of 16, Miss Rosenberg stood up and said: beloved Shoghi, sit down! People have no desire to listen to you and they have fallen asleep!” this old lady of 70 years, took the dice from hand of Shoghi and spoke”.

Kashful Hiyal Vol 2 page 84-85 second edition

“if one has seen  Mr. Shoghi Effendi has entered a private shower together with the son of Mirza Baqir Shirazi at the morning  call to prayer(Azan) and followed them and has seen again what he saw, he used to  say sense (eye) make errors in sensible (seeing) and you saw is wrong?”

His Achievements

He started dominating his house hold and miss used the Baha’i fund as he likes irrespective of his marriage was fixed with one of his cousin he married American lady, when he crossed all limits his house hold like his Father, mother, Bahaiyeh Khanum when objected he Walking on footsteps of his Grand Father Sir Abbas Effendi, he ex-communicated the entire linage of Baha’u’llah and cleared his path, even to his mother who played vital role in making him Guardian of faith.

Death of Shoghi Effendi an end of era of Guardianship

As he was mystery of God even his death remain mystery till today, here we can analyze with circumstantial evidence which show his sudden death was planned and he was poisoned.

In the beginning of year 1957 Shoghi Effendi was feeling sick as per advice of his doctors and his Wife he agreed to go for complete checkup in England he reached London with his wife on 20th October 1957 and they stayed together in one hotel during one week of their stay in London hotel suddenly Shoghi effendi was diagnose with Influenza it was time when the 10 years crusade plan was being drawn with the consultation of John Frabie (who was hand of cause of God and secretary of NSA England) and Hasan Balyouzi Afnan (who was member of NSA of England) , but it was not clear who will be head of faith after him, Marry Maxwell who was present and was aware of conspiracy was keeping tab on deteorating health of Shoghi Effendi and asked him that is there any pain in your body, Shoghi replied no, only in my finger, he said I am feeling tired she without through check up from doctors took medicine and gave to Shoghi to eat and in same night he passed away. Marry Maxwell knowing the gravity of situation had telegraphed Baha’i world that guardian is very sick, although he was dead.

Thus he left the world without appointing any guardian for the faith, although it was instruction from His Grandfather that every guardian should appoint his successor during his life time, and it was prophecy of Sir Abbas Effendi that this dispensation will have 24 guardian, the eldest son of each guardian will be the successor, Shoghi Effendi was child less for above mentioned reason, the prophecy of Sir Abbas Effendi  fake. A playboy guardian lived a lavish life style of a homosexual used the money of Baha’is, disobeyed the teachings of his grandfather and rested in peace in London.
